Star Wars: the Rise of Skywalker had a big opening weekend at the box office bringing in $374 million globally, per Deadline, as well as a few royal fans.  HOLA! Spain  has learned that  King Felipe  and  Queen Letizia  took their daughters,  Princess Leonor  and  Infanta Sofía , to the theater this weekend to watch the final installment of the Skywalker saga, which stars Guatemalan actor Oscar Isaac, in addition to Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver and John Boyega.

The Spanish royals caught the film at the Cinesa Manoteras in Madrid on Sunday afternoon. The Queen and King were reportedly dressed down for the low-key family outing. The mom of two wore a grey coat and black pants, while Felipe sported a black jacket.


Aside from the Spanish royals, it was revealed last week that  Kate Middleton ’s mother  Carole Middleton  is a Star Wars fan. Ahead of The Rise of Skywalker’s release (December 20),  Prince George ’s maternal grandmother showed off her  playful side engaging in an epic lightsaber battle . “We’re so excited about Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker releasing today! Carole and Steven even battled it out with two of our inflatable space sabers during the Party Pieces Christmas lunch this week! . #starwars #maytheforcebewithyou #partypieces #lightsaber #partysupplies #riseofskywalker #jedi #jedimaster,” the video was captioned.

Letizia and her daughters enjoy going to the movies. This past summer,  the royals, along with Queen Sofia, watched Disney’s     The Lion King  . The recent holiday movie date came just a few days after Leonor, 14, and Sofia, 12, began their winter break. The Spanish Princesses will resume school on January 8. The royals are set to celebrate Christmas Eve at their residence, Zarzuela Palace.

Earlier this month, Letizia and Felipe  released their annual Christmas card . The photo featuring themselves with their two daughters was taken in October during the family’s visit to the village of Asiegu. The card, which was signed by the monarchs and Princesses, read: “Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2020.”
